Several title fights have taken place on UFC Fight Island in Abu Dhabi.
In the main fight of the evening, Israel Adesanya and Paulo Costa fought for the middleweight championship belt. The beginning of the battle was calm. But already in the second round, Adesanya began to dominate. And then he knocked Costa down and then knocked out his opponent on the ground.
“Some people, like Khabib, I wasn’t a fan of his artistry at first. But then over time, slowly watching the way he’s worked his opponents, over time I’ve kinda become a bit of a fan of his artistry. If I say that about anyone doesn’t mean…I don’t like them and just like that people say they don’t like me. Like what? Eh.” Adesnya said.
There was also a light heavyweight championship fight, in which Jan Blachovich and Dominic Reyes met. Blakhovich knocked down his opponent in the second round, after which he finished off on the ground.
